humlelala (1046) - DENMARK - SEP 16, 2011
(50 cl bottle from Bunker Beer) Pours a clear black with medium, toffee head that laces the glass. Aroma is ashes, burnt malt and coffee. Full-bodied brew, creamy on the palate, medium carbonation and a smoky, roasted finish. The taste is mildly sweet with notes of smoke and faint sourness. Girlfriend says: "Nicely coffeeish and smokey."

garza (570) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - SEP 4, 2011
Smells like coffee, tastes like coffee, is almost coffee. Pours black cola like colour with a thin brown head. Strong coffee and alcoholic aroma, roasted malts and sweet notes. Roasted coffee on the taste together with malty notes and dark chocolate too. Well balanced with medium sweetness, light to medium bitterness and light sourness. Full body, creamy, soft carbonation, mid- bitter finsh. Good one.

larsga (6335) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2011
Medium beige head. Opaque black body. Mealy milky coffee aroma with earthy notes. Also something odd in there that I can’t analyze properly; vaguely chemical in nature. Sweet powdery earthy taste with chocolate, earth and milk notes. Fullish body. Mild, fizzy mouthfeel, very rounded. Dryish mealy burnt coffee aftertaste with pine needle and earth notes. Nice, mild, drinkable. Could have more character. (0.4l draft at Grünerløkka Ølfestival. Second batch.)

tastybeer (1802) - Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Draft. Pour is a dark brown/black with a decent beige head. Aroma is lots of coffee, tomatoes, other vegetable smells. Not good. Taste is better.. green coffee, vanilla, hazelnut, some spiciness. The palate is extremely sharp carbonation with chile spice and a bit on the watery side. What a mess.

GT2 (8819) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. The pour is a deep, clear cola red looking fully deep brown to black in the glass. A fizzy, weak brown head diminishes fully. Nose at first is loads of volatile DMS like qualities I’ve been getting in coffee stouts lately- big Mexican salsa but specifically tortilla chips AND salsa. Not a good start. As it warms, and I mean completely room temperature, it finally lets the chips and salsa volatile stuff subside for some rich hazelnut and vanilla. Still, beef bouillon cube and beef chile persist. It is much too late for redemption. Taste- very weak with almost no discernable character. Weak coffee and hazelnut. Small vanilla and chocolate. But so thin and lemony tart on the palate. But thankfully no chalk or cardboard. Overattenuated methinks.

On tap at Georgetown Pizza Paradiso. Dark brown pour with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma holds fantastic coffee presence, a touch of pepper, burnt toast, and a bit of wood. Flavor is much of the same, with amazingly balanced notes of coffee and the traditional dark malt porter characteristics. Good smooth palate. Delightful quaff.

phaleslu (6905) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Tap at The Lion’s Pride. Served in a wide chalice. Pours an opaque cola brown with a massive, rocky tan head that craters and laces the glass. Aroma is an absolute bang-bang rich coffee blast followed by some charred oak, dark chocolate, and toast. Flavor of rich coffee, dark chocolate, burnt toast, and rust. Coffee is similar to peppers in both aroma and flavor initially but this changes enough as it warms that I actually improved my aroma and palate ratings halfway through. A little thin on the body, but nice long roasty mouthfeel that lingers forever. Dry and roasty, with medium carbonation. Really nice coffee beer.
